For those who doesn't know what it is: It is the system that is
anonymously reporting the general statistics about your system: CPU,
hardware, OS version, installed packages. Reporting is done monthly, or

http://www.bsdstats.org. It is designed for all BSDs, not just FreeBSD.

anonymity network for even better anonymity.
2. Submission through HTTP proxy is fixed. It now works through proxies
with and without authentication.
3. It works many times faster now. Usually finishes in under 10 seconds.

developers to better focus their efforts. It is not collecting any
personally identifiable data. All data is handled with the greatest
respect of your privacy in mind. Keeping it installed is all you need to do.
